The Cross of Lorraine

The Cross of Lorraine sculpture, Tarbes, High Pyrenees, France

The wording on this particular sculpture of the Cross of Lorraine is 'Au Général de Gaulle' (In English: "To General de Gaulle"). This is a simple sculpture representing the WW2 Gaullist resistance to the German Occupation. The Cross of Lorraine was the symbol of this resistance during the war. Sometimes few words are required to represent a thing of great significance.
